National Health Care, from Major British News Papers

Most Americans are never going to know what health care is like in other countries.
In my previous post Natonal Health Care, My Personal Story. I talked about how health care happened to me and my family. Since that post, I’ve had a couple of people tell me “well when I went to London I cut my finger or smashed my hand and I got Excellent care'”.

What they don’t understand is that it’s not about the care.

Its about the COST and who’s controling the MONEY.

At 39% of GDP the United Kindom is one of the highest taxed countries in the world, in comparison USA is 28% of GDP, the problem is that the UK is  financially in worse shape than the USA.
